Joan Maiers' Work Selected for Art Installation, Anthology

Works by English faculty member Joan Maiers have been selected for the Kaiser Healthcare/Studio Art project and a Columbus Day storm anthology.

Her poem Willamette was selected to pair up with artwork to be displayed at Kaiser Healthcare offices in Hillsboro, as part of the Studio Art project.

Following the project's theme of Tranquil Relief through Nature, Studio Art Direct selected, commissioned and purchased works of art created exclusively by regional artists. The works selected were "beautiful, serene and have the ability to improve patient outcomes by lowering heart rates and reducing blood pressure," according to information posted on Studio Art's website.

In addition, the Independence, Oregon public library published a 1962 Columbus Day Storm Anthology in 2011, including a prose entry by Maiers titled Junction City, OR – Seattle, WA. Kathleen LaMear, an English alum, also had a work selected for the anthology. LaMears' work is titled Portland.
